, that is not the way to do it. what we should do is what medicare did in 1965. it was a christmas tree in the beginning. that is how they got the legislation passed. after that, then they started putting restrictions. in fact, we must be doing a good job, because now everyone is -- scared that medicare pays so little because it is too stingy in its payment. we did put cost controls and later. medicare does have its financial problems. let me end by saying, i think the public option would have had the potential to control costs, because you could sell insurance, it would garner market share. that could allow for the consolidated purchasing power i talked about to reduce costs which would bring more buyers there. reading the newspapers, it does not look like we will have a public option. that would be the one way in which i could see a health care reform having potential for controlling costs. on a positive note, it is not about costs or dead. if we move towards universal coverage, we are going to be creating a system that will be more malleable to the changes we want to see with regard to cost containme

"the wall street journal," ran this editorial calling the debt reduction commission or the deficit commission a trap. they say it is a trap that will lead to higher taxes, to more revenue. so on the left and the right we have those complaining that if you move forward to deal with the debt, you're going to make reductions in programs and you're goi i think that's undeniably the case. if you're going to deal with this debt threat, we are going to have to make changes in the spending prowewewewewe are goine changes in the revenue base of the country. i would suggest for those who are concerned abou

, too, is an entitlement. we tend to think about social security and medicare, medicaid as being the entitlements of great concern to us. interest on the national debt is truly obligatory, it has to be paid, it's an entitlement in the strongest sense of the word. our witnesses last week suggested we need some target thes. we don't need to be out there doing ad hoc things, we need some target to shoot at, and they were suggesting we try to bring the deficit down to 3% of gdp and bring the debt or at least hold it to no more than 6% of gdp. are those reasonable goals? do you think they're too level, too high, too tight, too strict? >> so, again, mr. chairman, it's not our place at cbo to suggest what your goals should be. economists don't have any analytic basis for saying, this is the crucial point in terms of debts or deficits. it is true that as we push in this country to 60%gdp at the end of this year and beyond that over the next few years, we're moving into territory that most developed countries stay out of. we are moving into territory the that is unusual in our historical
